Vox Populi Dress
runs very small
I love this dress and ordered it in red. Unfortunately I have to return it to order a larger size and sadly a different color. To put the sizing in perspective, I ordered a 0 because I'm 5'2, weigh 105 and am a 34A. I could NOT zip the dress up. I'm going to try the 2 and hope it fits. I can say this about the dress.It's well made, the fabric is thick enough so the pleats stand out which gives it that 50's look. It has a lining and ribbing in the bust so I wouldn't need to wear a bra. I say buy the dress but order one size larger than normal.

Some of the other reviews mentioned the tight bust - its true - size up! I'm not busty at ALL and could barely get the zipper up. This dress is nice and seems to be very well made, unfortunately its going back. I thought the blue would be a bit brighter as well.

Super Classic, Super Chic
I just got my dress in the mail yesterday and I was very pleasantly surprised. I plan on using it for my engagement photos and it is perfect. It is very well made, with a pretty lining and boning in the bust. I also love the 2 looks you can get by removing the straps. I am 32 DD bust and 28" waist and bought the size 6. The waist fit great and although the bust was pretty snug, it looked fine. At least I know I can wear it strapless and not worry about it sliding down. For the price it was a great buy! Even the fiance approved! :)

dream dress for NYC
I read all the reviews for the vox dresses. Many people say they do not like this dress because it does not fit true to size. All I did was order a size up from my normal. I purchased a size 10 and it fits like a dream - like it was made for me. I look nice and lean in it, too. My fiance and I are eloping to NYC in October and I plan to wear this dress in the evening after our Ceremony in Central Park and after we no longer have a limo to cart me around in my big, poofy wedding dress. It is my "something blue" for the day!!! The quality is amazing. I love the fabric. I was very pleased to find bust cups sewn into the dress. This is my first purchase from BHLDN... it could not have been an easier or happier experience. The dress is SO worth the money. Especially on sale!!!
